Phnesha Marchette

Phnesha Marchette grew up surrounded by performance and artistic expression, an interest that has stuck with her for life. A former professional cheerleader for the NFL, she overcame her fear of flying for a swimsuit shoot in the Dominican Republic—and soon developed a love of international travel.

Driven by the bold textures and colors of her explorations throughout the Caribbean, Phnesha discovered her passion for creating dimensional art, and went on to establish herself as a successful artist.

Her most important roles, however, are as a loving wife and doting mother which inspired her to create the Gabby and Gigi book series.
